    Hi All!
    I know that YouTube videos will rank if there are Views, Likes, Comments, subscribers and so forth. My question is will YouTube videos rank if there are Backlinks?
    If it does, then what is the most effective ways to set backlinks up?
    Thanks in Advance

    I think backlinks will not help. Views and decent retention for the views will work much better.

    This. Views, likes, comments will rank it in youtube, for ranking in g00gle/yahoo you need backlinks and some social signals

    Bounce rate, percentage of full views to partial views, likes, views and social signals determine a videos ranking. Google will naturally rank a youtube link if it determines your search is related to videos.

    If the search keyword is related to your video then it will rank naturally, simply the answer is yes. You can also embed the video link to the article.

    Backlinks used to work for me a for ranking videos on YT a year ago. I don't know about the present scenario, but you could give it a try at least. Use GSA to blast a few thousand BLs to your video and wait for a month or two to see some considerable changes in the ranking. :)

    I mean technically if you rank for google, it should get views and rank for YT. Kind of ranks it in a by product type way. When I'm trying to rank a youtube video I share on all the social media sharing platforms etc (since I use adsense and can't buy views/comments). Also, there are a lot of smaller promotional channels that will like/subscribe/comment back on your videos if you comment and like on theirs. If you comment too much (I usually do around 4-5, but I've heard up to 10 is fine) YT will flag your account as spam and the channel that gets the message will see "likely spam" next to your comment. So yeah, I basically hit up reddit/pinterest/stumbleupon/other niche specific social sites. Then I gsa the social links and the YT video itself. Works decently for me, but I guess it depends on how competitive the keywords you are going for are. Gl, hope this helps.

    I believe that backlinks and video title are the 2 most important things that matter when trying to rank a video in Google.

    yeah, it does work well. Don't build weak links and bl need to look natural; blog comments etc.
